Not ready for summer to be over?

I’m not either. If you’re seeking more sun and fun, plan a weekender to the Coachella Valley. From desert minimalism to magical Moorish-style villas, check out the best Palm Spring hotels here.

Sparrow’s Lodge

temp-post-image

Sparrow’s Lodge combines the best of a social Palm Springs experience and a relaxing retreat. Guests post up on the lounge chairs around the pool and share family-style meals under a gorgeous vine-covered trellis. Some Palm Springs visitors want to be steeped in mid-mod 24/7, but the rustic Craftsman-meets-red barn style at Sparrow’s Lodge is a nice break from that.

Korakia Pensione

temp-post-image

Many hotels in Palm Springs have the same look from the street: low stucco buildings, citrus trees, lots of shade. They’re all exceptional, but few magically transport you like Korakia Pensione does. The property is split by a street, with a Moorish-style villa on one side and a Mediterranean villa on the other.

Ace Hotel & Swim Club

temp-post-image

Hipster haters might roll their eyes at Ace Hotel, but as the saying goes: haters gonna hate… and miss out on one of the best stays. A weekend at the Ace can be an endurance-event party, if you want it to be. But during the week, it’s a sleek oasis, quietly humming with creative types, retreaters, and Monday night Bingo players.

L’Horizon Resort and Spa

L’Horizon is exclusive, chic, beautiful, and very Palm Springs. Even though it’s on a lively strip of Palm Canyon Drive, it’s probably one of the quietest and most pristine desert retreats on the planet.
